Hormones, Breasts And Penis Size

Recommended Posts

Guest JeanieTallis

Hey there ox.

Recently I've been having issues about breasts.

I have had Gender issues for about 2 years now, but ended up with the conclusion of thinking 'Its a gender... no point getting down about it'

Until the past few months, it's got to be pretty bad now, I would consider myself as Androgyne.

I've always fancied a female body, but at other times a male body.

The conclusion I came up with, is breasts.

I've had a thought which I've not changed about the genitals, which is;

The genitals you're born with work, keep it, don't get something that don't work.

I don't know the most reason stages in genital swaps, but I know it was/is true that you cannot get a fully functional genital organs. So, a MTF ending up giving birth, and have working ovaries with eggs and periods.

So I decided to actually keep my genitals, as I would like to be a dad later on in my life when being stable enough to do so.

What I decided that I would be perfectly happy with, is breasts.

I have been letting females go on Webcam, not for pervert reasons. They have breasts of course, and I feel like they should be on me instead.

It gets me down an awful lot.

I am 15, coming to 16, I'm going to wait atleast another 2 years or so before I actually get them, to make sure it is what I feel I should need.

The question I'm actually wanting to know the answer to.

As what I found out with female hormones, they develop breasts, but they also shrink the penis size, due to lack of testosterone. (Correct me if I'm wrong)

I would like to know, if I started hormones later on in the future, how I'd be able to keep my penis size without it shrinking at all?

Thank you.

I don't think there is a way to take estrogen and grow breasts without shrinking your penis. Also, after enough time, you'll become sterile from taking the hormones (I think about 3 months). It is possible that you just get implants... but I think you'll still need a little more skin in that area for implants to really work..

Well -we are not physicians nor are we therapists. What you ask for is an opinion which we can give, most of us basing on what we hear or what has happened to us.

You really need to talk with a gender dysphoria trained therapist before you do ANYTHING.

PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE do not get on illegal hormones - they are dangerous if unsupervised! You can have serious cardio-vascular damage, and you can destroy your liver.

That said - what you want? You want to be a virile male with breasts. OKAY - using hormones to grow breasts will have good and bad effects. I am MTF in transition - 4 1/2 months, so I speak from that experience. Taking enough hormones for breast development, essentiall chemically castrates you. The effects are pretty much permanent after awhile. That route also give you natural breast tissue, but it may not be what you are looking for, usually a cup size smaller than your genetic mother or female relatives. Many transpeople are okay with that - many want breast augmentation by surgery. And please understand you must be recommended by a therapist for HRT. Breast augmentation is usually simplier to obtain.

So do you simply have surgical breast augmentation? Perhaps - if you can get it. But understand these are not natural breasts. You will keep your verility though.

There is also an illegal breast-pumping technique - where nontrained people will give you commercial grade silicone injections - THESE ARE DEADLY, and they tend to migrate all over your body, sometimes straight to hour heart's blood supply. DEADLY remember

So what can be done? Well - wear breast prothesis - enhansers - silicone inserts.

Hope this helps

Thank you for your replies.

Yes, I would get referred for HRT if I were to do so.

Thing is with breasts, the only real way to get natural breasts is HRT right?

I want natural breasts, and its tricky..

I don't fancy the idea of breasts which dont feel natural.

Yeah, I think HRT is the only way for natural breasts.

It's a trade off. HRT is the only way to grow breasts naturally. The down side is, your genitals will atrophy, you will become sterile and your sexual libido will drop to very little or nothing. To receive HRT, you must see a gender therapist who, if he determines that you are transsexual, will write a letter of recommendation to a doctor for you to begin HRT. The doctor will probably insist on a full physical first to determine what hormones you can safely take. Taking hormones unsupervised can likely result in thrombosis, liver disease, stroke and heart attack. Are you willing to risk that? I'd think twice about this if I were you.

Dear Jeanie,

You do not have to face this all by yourself! That is what gender therapists are for. It is not your decision to take hormones, it is your doctor's. One step at a time dear, if you want to have a fully functioning penis then you do not want to take hormones! If your penis is just something that you need to change then talk to your doctor!! Breasts... well so many bio-women would like to have larger breasts!!

Take care and be smart about hormones, don't treat HRT as a hobbie!!

LOL

Even though you say nothing artificial or added you may try Breast Forms and walk around with that feeling for awhile..if you like that and you are happy with your genitalia think of implants a size A" would probably do..I've often fantasized about that myself..SHAKE PARTNER!!!

Breasts forms are quite costly... I've been looking.

As I mentioned for hormones (i think)

If I was to take them, I'd not do it on my own. It's not something that I'm going to get tomorrow.

I know about the affects, and I'm not willing to risk it.

I just asked a general question, to see what would be best at this moment...

Sorry if it never came across that way.

What If I were to do HRT, what about if I then went back onto testosterone after feeling satisfied with the boobs? What would happen there, would the verility come back etc.

Jeanie -

I have the same issue as you about breasts. I want them so badly but don't want HRT because I don't want to lose my male abilities but maybe one day I will change my mind. I would only do it under a doctor's supervision.

Maybe implants are the answer, but that makes it hard when I want to pass as male, like at the gym or swimming pool and such. I might get to the point where it would be worth it to have the implants.

Right now I have breast forms and I love them, I feel great when I wear them. I can get depressed though when I dwell too much on the fact that they aren't real and I want real ones.

I wish I had a good answer.

Some masculine characteristics would come back. You would still be sterile, but you would probably start growing hair again... hairy boobs...

      Michelle, being open and available to others is the key to being able to lose our own natural propensity for self consciousness that is sometimes all consuming and becomes the ruination of potentially good experiences out in public and even with friendships. It also serves to drive away the dark clouds of depression that we sometimes fall into when we become overly self absorbed with our own negative self image. Most people don't see us as we do and aren't nearly as critical as we tend to be of our own selves.

      Well you might have. Women mechanics and women who ride are HAWT. So at least it would have been in a good way.   Hugs!

      Huzzah for helping people! I've had a couple of people stop me and tell me how brave I am, but I don't think I've ever inspired anyone to get help. Well done!   Hugs!

      @Krisvm You look great! I'll bet you feel pretty good too. There's just something about being right... also I'm jealous as heck of your waistline. Work it girl!   Hugs!

      I’ve known other transgender people throughout my life who only question why they have to go through the struggle of becoming someone that people see and respect as the gender they feel like. Many of us have come to the realization early on but some later. Whether it’s personal trauma that starts this introspection or just not feeling correct in the gender we are assigned, it’s a very personal thing. I’ve also encountered very few people who have said they detransitioned willingly but usually they were ftm. This idea that trans trenderism is the only reason people are transitioning is from people who oversimplify everything. But the truth is that since we live in a complex world that complicates things for us, there’s no easy answer for anything in life. Even though I knew from a fairly early age that something wasn’t right I didn’t know what to call it. But once I did it was this realization that “this is possible” and a sense of relief that there was a way. That was around 16, but it took another 14 years of personal struggle and ignoring certain cues because of social pressure until I finally found that HRT was the only thing that chemically made me feel normal. Then when I went through a bunch of craziness for another 16 years that prevented me from continuing my HRT I was devastated, tired, broken, struggling and unsatisfied with my life. I just didn’t realize it again until everything came crashing down on me and I grieved for what seems like weeks. So now after taking the long way around back to the same thing I so easily accepted about myself earlier in life I decided to stop running from it, procrastinating, or trying to fit this false image others have of me. While it’s never too late to begin, it’s also futile to try explaining it away because it’s something that won’t go away. It lingers. It’s constantly in the back of my mind. And it’s not necessarily the need to present feminine and that’s it. It’s so much more. When I looked at my personal thoughts, attitudes about certain issues, my opinions, how I view love and other people, relationships, it really sunk in that my mind is female already.  So now it’s just a matter of aligning the rest of me. Is it more difficult than if I had not been so dense about it at 18? Sure. But it’s something that I’m deeply compelled to pursue. It’s very much a spiritual journey with physical aspects. My life is an object lesson. Not about learning too late, but what happens when I let others question my deep seated sense of myself and stop listening to the inner voice that knows better than they ever will. It’s not really for me to find out why it seems so prevalent today. What is important is being who I really am. Sometimes I look in the mirror and don’t recognize myself because I don’t see what I want: dysphoria. But some days I see the girl that has always been there. It’s those days that I feel encouraged and renew my determination. To put it in perspective, I don’t have any real life transgender friends around me for support. It’s been difficult to fit the groups and other social activities in for the past year. So nobody can say that what I feel is a result of mimicking others. On the other hand I do find comfort and social interaction with other trans women here and in the discord chat. I come here for the more thoughtful outlet and go on discord for the fun, silly chat where I can laugh and be just one of the girls. They definitely fill a void. Anyway I can be very wordy so I’ll stop writing for now. Just know that what you feel inside is more important than the costumes others try to put you into.
